S otheby’s is delighted to present this summer’s edition of Contemporary Art | Online, which brings together works by some of the most exciting emerging artists and established names. This season’s sale combines a selection of fantastic works from the likes of Damien Hirst, Stik, Keith Haring, Aboudia and Flora Yukhnovich.
This season’s Contemporary Art Online | London, features the works by artists who have widely experimented with figuration. Throughout history, the human figure persisted as a source of inspiration, a narrative vehicle and even a means for artists to flaunt their mastery of realistic depiction. From Keith Haring’s and Stik’s sketched and cartoon-like figures, to Julian Opie’s simplified forms, to Antony Gormley and Aboudia’s inquiry into the human condition, these works testify the enduring importance of figuration in contemporary art.
